The Face of France

Patrick Marnham wrote Resistance and Betrayal: The Death and Life of the Greatest Hero of the French Resistance, a book every person capable of reading needs to read about Jean Moulin's example of character and humanity at its highest level. Every high school and college student needs to understand his granite will, the demands of such a great freedom quest, and the ability of one human being to take on the daunting task of freeing his homeland from tyranny. Moulin shows that one person with a vision can indeed make a difference.

When I saw the face of Jean Moulin on the cover of Resistance and Betrayal, tears erupted from my eyes on down my face. The instant emotion startled me, forced me to pick up the book. The tears still come every time I see the face of Jean Moulin.

Why? Jean Moulin is one of the few heroes who took responsibility out of goodness rather than vainglory. Jean Moulin cared so much for the freedom of his beloved France that he suffered until death to achieve this grand goal and become the greatest hero of the French Resistance.

As an artist, Jean Moulin speaks to my heart and soul.  I had to paint him, create him in an image that speaks to his greatness. He allowed me to paint him with all the scars from all the torture he suffered before he was killed.

Read of Jean Moulin through Marnham and come away knowing that greatness is possible for any human being determined to realize a vision for the good of the people of a country, lilke Moulin, like Gandhi.
